The Academy Awards airs today and the S&A crew plan to examine if winning the coveted Oscar truly helps, or hinders, black actors and actresses.  It's an exciting topic that we'd love to get your two cents on so call us today at (347) 215 - 8777.

Here's what to expect from today's show:

  • Avoiding The Oscar CurseViola Davis and Octavia Spencer may win the coveted Oscar this Sunday but if they do, how can they avoid the dreaded Oscar curse that's plagued so many black actors?  What kind of projects should they be looking for?
  • Black Oscar Nominees and Winners.  We'll take a look at black Oscar nominees/winners from the past to determine what they did wrong or right for their careers and what should be their next move.   Monique, Forest Whitaker, Halle Berry, Cuba Gooding Jr., Jennifer Hudson, Taraji Henson and more will be on the discussion list.
  • Comebacks.  We'll be naming actors and actresses that we'd love to see make a comeback.
